The Queen's Palace

See the source image

The last Queen to the Hawaiian islands, Queen Liliuokalani, joined the LDS Church in 1907. Which future television show was filmed inside the Queen’s palace?
a.                  Swiss Family Robinson
b.                  Hawaii Five-O
c.                   The Golden Girls
d.                  Fantasia
Yesterday’s answer:
(B)   To apostatize here rather than in the Salt Lake Valley
To reduce disaffections, the evacuation ultimatum included a major emigration policy change. Until then, leaders had designated the “Pottawattamie lands” as the best place where Saints could “speedily better their condition for their further journey.” At times the Presidency said they wanted European converts to halt in the States for a while so that those who would otherwise apostatize in Utah would do it before coming. But the First Presidency cancelled the stopover option. British Mission President Franklin D. Richards counseled Saints early in 1852 that emigration on longer would be on the old plan, and that during such stopovers “some have lost the Spirit and apostatize, and many, when they get here, become lukewarm and indifferent.” Saints should stay in England “until they can go through to the Valley.”
